Adirondack Chairs Makeover in Two Shades of Blue

A few years ago, I won a pair of Adirondack chairs at an auction, for the bargain price of $10 bucks for both. I couldn’t believe I got such a great deal on them.  They are super comfortable to sit on, and I love them, but we probably should have stored them in the garage during the winter.  The wood was bare, without any paint or sealer, so the elements were starting to take a toll on them, and I wanted to give them {Read More}

Farmhouse Friday #2 – Farmhouse Ladders

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22

This week’s theme for Farmhouse Friday is Ladders, because as you’ll discover, they aren’t just for reaching high places anymore! Ladders work well in many styles of decor, but because of the rustic nature of vintage ladders, they are especially well-suited to farmhouse style decorating.

Repurposed Half Table into Nightstand

My bedroom remodel is coming along … ssslowlyyyy, since my husband can only work on it on his days off, and then only if something else isn’t going on, so to keep myself from having impatient, nagging fits, I’ve been working on projects for the bedroom.   The minute this remodel is finished, I’ll be moving all my finished projects in while my husband is carrying his tools out.  The dust won’t even settle before I start dragging things in! I’ve {Read More}

Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity Reveal

I should have titled this post “Farmhouse Bathroom – Take 3”, because I just can’t seem to stop teaking my bathroom.  A few weeks ago I showed you the makeover in progress that I was giving our antique cabinet bathroom vanity.  I thought I’d be showing the makeover to you in just a few days, but one thing led to another, and before I knew it, the entire bathroom ended up getting refreshed in the process.  So let’s recap… Here’s how it looked when we {Read More}

Antique Cabinet Bathroom Vanity Update

Unless you’re my mother, or one of the 20 readers I had back in 2011, you probably don’t remember the antique cabinet that I found at a thrift store for only $8. A few months later we moved into our current home, and we converted the cabinet into a bathroom vanity when we remodeled one of our bathrooms.

antique sewing machine table, plus things I love

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again … I’m no seamstress. I spend more time yelling at my sewing machine than actually sewing, because every time I use it it’s like making a date with my seam ripper. A really bad date.  I’m just sewing machine jinxed. I only sew if I can’t talk my mom into traveling 1,000+ miles to visit and sew for me, and if I can’t I’ve been know to give her fabric with instructions when I {Read More}

Plant Stand Makeover – Bee Image Transfer

I’d love to tell you that every single project I work on turns out exactly as I envisioned, but that would be SO far from the truth.  The truth is, some projects never make it on my blog because they were such disasters, and some are just a comedy of errors during the process – except I’m rarely laughing at the time. I have one of those projects to show you today.

When you really want a grandchild, but get a rocking chair instead

Somebody in my family better have a baby soon, because vintage children’s items keep adopting me. I assure you – I am not looking for them, but when a little kid calls out to you, it’s hard to resist.

Antique Dressing Table Makeover and Beagle Photo Bomb

Last month, I showed you the antique dressing table I found at a thrift store.  I finished painting it several weeks ago, but it’s been too dark in my house to get a good photo of it, so I finally asked my husband and son to carry it outside so I could get photos in natural daylight. Here’s how it looks now.  I don’t buy a lot of antique furniture, and when I do, I almost always get it at an auction {Read More}
